1st Grade Literature Comprehension Task Cards



1st Grade Literature Comprehension Task Cards are a literature standards-based resource. Each literature standard comes with 5 stories and 6 follow-up questions for comprehension. They come with recording sheets, as well for the students to write their comprehension answers on. The task cards fit 4 to a page, so you can print, cut, and put on a binder ring.

*There is now a digital component included in this resource. The comprehension task cards are now created in Google Slides. You can get access to the digital versions on page 5 of the PDF.*

Each standard (8 standards):

-5 stories
-6 questions for each story
-Numbered for easy organization
-Question sheets for assessment
(RL1.5 and RL1.9 are set up a bit differently. There are 2 stories [each 2 pages] and only 4 questions since one of the stories takes up 2 task card slots!)

So, there are 40 passages in all!

**The first grade version comes with regular lines or primary lines option. Choose the one you need when unzipping the bundle.**

This resource is included in a Reading bundle for 1st grade. Save big money when buying this product with the Informational set, too.
